The Reihill family have always been strong supporters of the College and the Union, and that connection spans many decades. John and his brother Frank attended from 1946 through to 1955, and his sons Johnny and Mark were here in the 70's and nephew Shane was class of '83.

On behalf of the wider Vincentian community, we extend our heartfelt condolences to his family.

Requiescat in Pace.
